The Central Crime Station (CCS) — a wing of the city police - has taken up probe into the death of an engineering graduate P Eshan Reddy, who allegedly committed suicide apparently for the cause of separate Telangana state in Hyderabad.
Reddy's case has been transferred to the CCS, following orders from the city police commissioner, a senior police officer said on Sunday.
The charred body of Reddy, aged 22, was found near the library of Osmania University (OU) campus on Saturday morning and police suspect that the youth might have burnt himself to death on Friday night itself.
"The OU Police had earlier registered a case of unnatural death following the incident. Now, the CCS will probe from all angles including tallying the hand-writing with that from the suicide note that was found beside Reddy's body," the officer told PTI.
Ruling out a murder angle in the case, the officer said "it (Reddy's death) looks like a suicide," and added that further investigations will throw more light on the incident.
Reddy, who recently completed his B Tech from a city college, in a suicide note purportedly written by him, stated that he was sacrificing his life after his wish that all the 12 legislators who had earlier resigned demanding formation of Telangana state get re-elected and APCC president D Srinivas gets defeated in the recently concluded bypolls, was fulfilled.
